London 2022 [no label, 2CD]

BBC Proms. Live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, UK; August 27, 2022. Very good audio (ripped from BBC TV broadcast).

Cynthia Erivo is a London-born creative phenomenon, a Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer. Her career has taken her from her childhood in South London to the West End and Broadway, and her recordings have also thrilled audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.

Tonight, Erivo takes the Proms by storm as she sings the great American songbook of the 1950s and 60s. Backed by the BBC Concert Orchestra, she salutes the legendary female voices that have shown her the way: artists such as Nina Simone, Shirley Bassey, Billie Holiday and Gladys Knight. Andi Oliver presents from the Royal Albert Hall in London, and is joined by special guests Clarke Peters and Ayanna Witter-Johnson.
